Five For Fighting - Superman (It's Not Easy) Lyrics

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naïve
I'm just out to find
The better part of me

I'm more than a bird,
I'm more than a plane
I'm more than some pretty face beside a train
It's not easy to be me

I wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
'Bout a home I'll never see

It may sound absurd but don't be naïve
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed but won’t you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream
And it's not easy to be me

Up, up and away, away from me
Well, it's alright
You can all sleep sound tonight
I'm not crazy or anything

I can't stand to fly
I'm not that naïve
Men weren't meant to ride
With clouds between their knees

I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
Inside of me, inside of me [2x]

I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
I’m only a man looking for a dream
I’m only a man in a funny red sheet
And it's not easy.
It's not easy to be me.

  68. thegiaalencar#2

    Yes!!Nothing easy for all!

  69. Randa Thompson

    The part at 1:37 gets me everytime for some reason.

    James Edward

    Same. For me at least, I think it's because the part where he says "you can all sleep sound tonight, I'm not crazy, or anything" rings so true. Superman could literally kill everyone if he wanted to, or if he was crazy, but everyone can sleep sound purely because of his benevolence to let them live in peace and safety. I think when taken together with the song's overall metaphor about a person everyone else depends on but who never outwrdly shows any weakness, this part is about how the only reason all these people can sleep soundly without a care is because this person they depend on chooses to let them rely on him/her. If they simply changed their mind they could leave them all and probably be better off, but they don't do that because they choose to look after them instead, even at great personal expense.

    Randa Thompson

    Not just the lyrics though, the instrumental part/his voice is intense at this part of the song.

    James Edward

    @Randa Thompson Yes, that definitely helps too :)

  70. Melissa Francisco


  71. Arianna Janae Gardner

    This song applies to all who feel like so many things rely on them and because of this have so much growing and paralyzing stress, but never complain and even feel guilty for confessing to not be able to do something. They don't know what it is like to not feel anxious or overwhelmed but keep their innard struggles to themselves all the time. This song is exactly what they think every day. It is for all those people of any age or gender. I feel this all the time and I'm only in high school.

  72. Wutikai 12

    2020 anyone ?
